The Basis for a New Showtime® Original Series Starring Michael C. Hall
Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep’s clothing. He’s handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He’s a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened–of himself or some other fiend.
This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Lindsay's Dexter's Final Cut.
Publishers Weekly Review

Different but good!
I watched the show before reading. Turns out that the book is on par with the show until toward the end. I found that the show made this story arc more dramatic than the book. Also, characters were developed faster in the show than in this book.
I would recommend this book because it is written beautifully.
But watch the show too...
A truly captivating thriller.
Great book; TV Season is better
After watching the 1st season and reading "Darkley Dreaming Dexter". I found myself drawn more to the ShowTime story line rather than the Authors writing. Never the less this is still a great book and worth the read.
